§ Mr. MARDY JONES
asked the Secretary for Mines how many colliery companies have gone into liquidation since 1st January, 1927, to date; what is the name and situation of each such company; what was the total number of millers employed by each such company; and can he designate which, if any, of them have since been scheduled as abandoned mines?
§ Commodore KING
As stated by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary on 6th December, efforts are being made to collect information about colliery companies which have gone into liquidation. If the hon. Member likes to repeat his question in a week's time, I hope to be then in a position to reply.
